Substance Abuse Intervention Programs
West Virginia Northern now offers two new Substance Abuse Intervention Programs.
Students enrolled in these new programs will have the opportunity to receive a $5,000 stipend and up to $3,000 in assistance for tuition and fees.
The Substance Abuse Intervention Specialist is a two-year program in which students can earn an Associate Degree. This program is for anyone who wants to pursue a career as an Intervention/Prevention Specialist and will also give individuals who have been in recovery and maintained sobriety for a period of two years a chance to change their future job prospects and become peer recovery support specialists.
This program will be enrolling for the Fall 2021 Semester. For more information, email Kathy Herrington.
The Substance Abuse Intervention Technician is a one-year, advanced skill set program. Students will be trained to work as substance abuse intervention technicians and specialists, peer recovery support specialists, prevention specialists, or substance abuse counselors.
The advanced skill set program is enrolling students for the Spring 2021 semester.
